Cape Town - Justin Harding's spectacular last few months just got a whole lot better - and in fact, his 2020 is looking blooming good too!
Harding, who was making his debut at the 83rd Masters at Augusta National this past week, signed for a 8-under par 280, good enough for a tie for 12th place.
Which is turn was good enough for a guaranteed invite back to the hallowed course for next year's tournament.
One of the qualifying categories for the year's first Major is that the 'Top 12 and ties' from the previous year get invites 12 months later.
Harding entered this year's Masters ranked 49th in the world rankings, but thanks to his exploits, he now occupies the 44th spot.
Harding more than held his own in illustrious company, even leading the tournament at one stage during the first round, and finished as the highest placed South African of the six that started last Thursday.
Harding also had his bank manager smiling, cashing a cool R3.1 million for his four days' work.
